If a stray spore of Cirque du Soleil had taken root in one of Dostoevsky's Russian winters, this deeply imaginative act of theatre might have been the result. Slava, a Russian clown of the old school - the really old pre-vaudeville school, surrounds himself with dreamlike scenery and fantastic situations in a show that has won critical approval worldwide.
To say more (as a newspaper critic put it) would have the effect of reading a summary of your forthcoming dream in the moment before falling asleep. If you're looking for an unconventional show with beautiful imagery, this is a good buy.
The presenter notes that the show is inappropriate for kids under 8. You might get a little wet and/or covered with small plastic things, so dress appropriately.
